Jane enjoyed family get togethers where for years she cooked Sunday dinner for the whole family. She also enjoyed jewelry making and made sure all her outfits had a matching necklace, bracelet and earrings. But her true passion was wildflowers, she drove all over Caldwell County photographing every one she could and labeled and memorized the names of each. In the spring, the yard would not be mowed until wildflowers all went for seed.
She graduated from Lockhart ISD and after many years of service retired from Gonzales ISD. She was perfectly happy at home with her dogs, visiting friends, seeing her kids and grandchildren and enjoying her hobbies for the rest of her life. Jane was a long-time member of the Harwood Baptist Church.
